The title of Stu Levy’s One Picture Book is also an anagram of the book’s subject, Carl Chiarenza. Levy’s “Grid Portraits” – in which multiple photographs of his subject, taken from various perspectives and distances, are combined to create one portrait – have been exhibited widely and are featured in many important collections throughout the United States. Cranial Czar, Eh? folds out map-like from its hardbound case.
